      Audience Member The best movie song ever sung: the title song! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Breezy musical remake of Home in Indiana (1944), with Pat Boone & Shirley Jones making a wholesome movie couple; the title song was nominated for an Oscar. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member They just don't make movies like this any more. From a more innocent time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice film, but very dated. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Shallow and didn't teach the best lessons, but I did enjoy some of the music. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review ashley h April Love is a clean cut and fun film. It is about a young man visiting his relatives' farm in Kentucky who falls in love with their neighbor. The music is terrific to listen to. Pat Boone and Shirley Jones give excellent performances. The screenplay is well written. Henry Levin did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed this motion picture because of the drama and comedy. April Love is a must see. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
